Oklahoma basketball's hidden treasure?
By Ray Martin
Not many people know about Rex Farmer. But there are a few premier high schools in Oklahoma that know him plenty well.
Farmer is a 6-foot-6 freshman forward that leads the Oklahoma City Storm, one of Oklahoma City’s two home-school teams. And by lead them, I mean almost single handedly propelled the Storm to wins over big teams this season, such as Star Spencer, Lawton Mac and Enid. The latter two are 6A school, while Star has been ranked in the top five in class 4A most of the year.
All that being said, I want to encourage an interesting discussion on this blog. Where would the Storm be if they were sanctioned by the OSSAA? Where would they be ranked, and in what class? Would they be playing at the Big House this weekend for a state title?
I think those are interesting questions. Before you answer, read my previous note on Farmer by clicking his name above, and consider that the Storm reached the finals of both tournaments it played in this year, against pretty salty public school competition.
As the playoffs come to a close, there is without a doubt a host of teams thankful they didn’t have to worry about Rex Farmer this post season.
